About
This offbeat roadside attraction features 10 graffiti-covered Cadillacs standing upright in a row, buried nose-first in the ground. The sculpture is the brainchild of Amarillo millionaire Stanley Marsh III, who chose classics dating from 1948 to 1963, the "Golden Age" of the American automobile.

This was my second visit to Cadillac Ranch. The first time I forgot spray paint so I had to make another stop so I could do some tagging. You Park along the access road and walk down a dirt path to get to the cars. You can bring your own spray point or they have a truck selling cans for $6 each. Do NOT buy paint from the gift shop down the street. It's $10 a can there! We learned that the hard way. It's honestly hard to see anything you spray on the cars because there is so much paint on them. Your best bet is to bring 2 cans of paint. 1 to do a base coat to block out other paintings then 2 would be the one to write or draw what you want. It's in a field by the highway so it is pretty windy. Keep that in mind when visiting cause you may end up with paint on you. It is free to enter and definitely worth a stop at least once.

TIP: Stand upwind of the cars and paint, watch your dogs near the cars, as people may be painting from the inside, and sometimes there are children with spray paint cans who are being a bit careless where they aim. This is more of an issue during holiday weekends, not normal days.

Neat spot, to check along a road trip. Read up on the history behind this art exhibit. Some walking is involved, not too much but you can park on the feeder road.

You are allowed to paint whatever you want or tag the cars. Note you are not allowed to tag the road way, you can get fined for that if caught.

If you forgot your paint, there's 2 trailers selling snacks/food, souvenirs and spray paint.

One plus, which surprised me on a 4th of July Weekend, there was no crazy "Tourist trap" markup on items there. Spray paint was 6-7$ a can and everything else was reasonably priced.

Great way to commemorate our sons graduation trip through Texas. We received paint cans from another traveler who chatted us up about our destination. So we graffitied up!

Interesting to see how thick the paint is on these cars, some places 6-8” and dripping from the wheels!

You can purchase paint onsite for $6 can and t-shirts. We gifted our paint to another family before we left.

Nice side stop to break up the miles and do something that’s normally illegal. 🤣

This area has several old Cadillacs nose down in the ground that are quite colorful now. You are allowed to spray your own graffiti on the old cars if you have spray paint or if another tourist gives you their leftover can. This sits a short walk away from the roadside parking. Probably would not recommend this for wheelchairs or other mobility challenged people because of uneven ground. But it is cool to stop here and get some fun photos while stretching your legs a bit from the drive. This sits on the west side of Amarillo and not far from the highway. You can find it on the online maps. This area appears to be maintained and is not trashy at all … makes this a recommended free attraction!

One of the funner things we did in town.
I bought a different color spray paint for each family member and we attacked those caddies armed with our spraying colors.

To make the occasion extra special it was my teens 16th birthday, so most of our epic graffiti murals were of her name and Sweet 16 hallmarks.

The photo's we took are amazeballs of our 16 year old coming into her own defacing fancy caddies in the middle of the Texan plains.

Our youngest 11 year old, had a ball and I'm not sure if she got more paint on the cars or herself..

It can be quite crowded, and after the rain their can be large puddles to maneuver around the car frames. So me lil' one if she could not get to the car she turned to the ground defaced several spots on the earth with colorful stepping stones and well wishes to randoms.

while here don't fret if your can runs out.. Seems too many ppl litter, but also just waste unused cans leaving them on the ground for newcomers.

I was also surprised to see vendors here, you can buy drinks, food, and brick-brick.

This was lots of fun as we got to spray paint on a Cadillac, take pictures, and meet lots of people. We had bought a can of spray paint with us but there really was no need as lots of people had left cans with paint still in them there. If you are in the area you should stop. It’s very easy to get to and it’s close to the Second Amendment Cowboy so you can get a picture with him too! I put the addresses down for both in my GPS.

If you are in the area stop and see it, it exactly what you see in the pictures nothing more. I was actually a little disappointed in the area because the visitors are not respecting the art. The area is a little dirty and people leaving spray cans just thrown around everywhere. The day we visited it had just rained and so all around the cars it was flooded, we had to stand at a distance.

We swung by on a whim and were not disappointed. Because of recent rains, all of the cars were sitting in a large puddle. Nevertheless, the fresh coats of colorful spray paint and the scattered paint cans testified to this being a favorite spot for visitors. It costs nothing and was fun to visit.

I mean it’s Cadillacs buried in a field…and it’s awesome. Who knew spray painting a car could be so much fun. Worth the few minutes it takes to stop at this funky roadside attraction. Take time to look up the history of this art installation and then start painting. We actually just grabbed a few cans of spray paint from the trash cans that still had paint in them. A must see for any road trip through Amarillo.

It's not really worth the hype. All you do is spray paint some old cars. It is a fun quick thing to do if you're on the road and a pretty photo op. Other than that your masterpiece won't stay there long and the paint smell is overwhelming and because it's Amarillo it will blow back in your face.
